Prices in the app stores of Apple and Google remain the same, despite the increase in VAT

In connection with the increase of VAT in Russia is 18% to 20% of the price of many products has grown, however, Apple and Google don’t have to raise the price in their app stores.

First this fact drew the attention of journalists

“The Apple of receipts received after January 1, specified VAT at 20%. Thus the end product cost to the consumer has not changed. So, Apple Music in December cost 143,22 rubles without VAT, and in January 2019 ā€” 140,83 of the ruble.”

It is also noted that the price of subscriptions to third party services like Bookmate has not changed. Users of social networks drew attention to the fact that the price of applications are not increased from 1 January 2019.

Apparently, the example of Apple was followed by Google. In the Play Store app pricing has not changed despite the increase in VAT.

Maybe companies will be forced to reduce payments to developers, not to raise prices in the app stores.
